The Holiday season is now in full swing. There isn't a month as festive as December, where there's usually a get-together to go to every weekend until the new year. Usually, our Holidays are full of family get togethers. We all somehow manage to squeeze into someone's house & each bring a dish – we bring the traditional dishes but lately, we've been mixing it up and some have been bringing in new dishes. One of them being me. My mother-in-law in Honduras used to work as a cook in a restaurant and knows how to make unique dishes & luckily, she likes to share them with me! I asked the other day for a new recipe for a simple dessert and she delivered – giving me a recipe using 3 simple ingredients that anyone can do using Avocados, Confectioners Sugar (or regular Sugar) and Lime Juice.
You'd be surprised in how many yummy recipes actually call for avocados in the recipe. I've been addicted to the Avocados from Mexico website, bookmarking my favorites.
Especially with the recipes I've been finding of celebrity Chef Pepín. He has some great recipes that capture the spirit of a Posadas feast – a Christmas tradition in Mexico & Latin America.
I've been pinning my favorite recipes as well & even have my picky eater son asking for seconds with the ones that I make! It's fun to have Holiday traditions & traditional meals but it's also fun to make new ones and while this recipe seemed a little different from what we usually eat, I went for it & everyone who's tried it, has loved it.
Avocado Lime Dessert
Ingredients: Avocados, Lime Juice and Confectioners Sugar (or regular Sugar)
You just blend (or whisk) the three ingredients together – adding the amount of sugar & lime juice to your taste and that's it! It's such a great way to get your kids to eat avocados who normally wouldn't! It tastes like Avocado Lime pudding.
